Bunch of Fives Series
Possum's Rest

Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?

A printer-friendly version of this page 5 minutes
Directed by Nick Hilligoss
Produced by the Natural History Unit, Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Executive Producer, Dione Gilmour

It was a quiet, leafy neighborhood until the humans moved in. Motors, loud music and barbecue smoke disrupt possum sleeping hours, and then the humans have the nerve to get upset with a little moonlight song and 3 a.m. clogging on a tin roof. Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?

Other titles in the series are:

Turtle World - A powerful allegory about the survivability of Homo sapiens.

Cell Animation - You can escape in nature.

Lower Orders - A new and funny look at the food chain!

Banjo Frogs - An adolescent frog learns to fit in with new neighbors.
